According to Paris Hilton's family, that's what Doug ReinHardt was doing before the couple recently broke up and with that family, they are not shy in saying so.
"I think Paris needs to be with someone who is a bit more mature, older and has their own thing," Paris' mother, Kathy Hilton told reporters who had spied the family this weekend's L.A. Lakers and AEG party at Club Nokia L.A. Live.
Oh yeah, like Mel Gibson or, say Billy Bob Thornton?
Next Paris' Aunt, Kyle Richards added, "The stories out there about our family not approving of their relationship are completely true," Paris' aunt, Kyle Richards, said. "Doug was riding Paris' coattails."
In case the two ladies or any of the rest of the family need to know, Doug Reinhardt has his own company, called Fun Factor, LLC, which is one of the leading mobile phone entertainment providers as well as several other things he's heading up while still playing some baseball in the Baltimore Oriole organization.
He's also heavily involved with the Entrepreneurial Properties Corporation, another success.
Ladies, ladies, from all sources and friends, it was Doug Reinholt who dumped Paris.
Plus, most people do not think that it was Paris Hilton's "coattails" he's been hanging onto!
